Various elements in Mahara don't have a high enough level of contrast to meet WCAG standards. The contrast of these elements needs to be increased so that people with low vision can see them easily.

- "X results" text, eg. on Pages, "X tasks" on Tasks blocktype, etc.
- Preview of page text, file size in Files block, "posted by" in Journal entry block

Default theme
- Table headers in Files blocktype, Attached files header in Journal entry blocktype
- "X entries" text in Journal blocktype
- Download link in Files blocktype, Go to forums link in Recent posts blocktype
- Menu items when small headers are enabled
- Blue table headers and labels (eg. in My entire resume blocktype, Plan blocktype, Content -> Profile)
- In-page tabs
- Links on a light green background (eg. in tables)
- Links on a red background (overdue tasks in table)
- All other links
